If there’s one thing the world needs more of, it’s love. And that’s the message that dozens of Broadway stars conveyed at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia Wednesday night, singing their hit charity single “What the World Needs Now Is Love.”

Stars of the Broadway for Orlando group, which includes Idina Menzel, Audra McDonald, Kristen Bell, Darren Criss, and Brian Stokes Mitchell, gathered on stage to give an emotionally-charged performance. More than 40 stars passed the microphone down the line and, without missing a beat, raised their voices in a song of unity.

The feeling of love was tangible as the final notes rang out through the room, with attendees throwing their hands in the air in the shape of a heart, while others joined hands to show solidarity. The moving performance ended with the audience chanting, “Love trumps hate.”

Broadway for Orlando Sings Charity Single “What the World Needs Now Is Love”

The Broadway for Orlando song and music video originally debuted last month and, since then, has garnered over 1 million views, according to Playbill.

Over 60 Broadway legends, including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Carole King, Chita Rivera, Billy Porter, and Kelli O’Hara, lent their voices to the single in the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting. Because the song was created to honor the victims of the shooting, 100 percent of the proceeds from the cover of the Burt Bacharach and Hal David song benefit the LGBT Center of Central Florida.

In a Playbill article, producer Seth Rudetsky said, “The Broadway community was so terribly shaken and devastated by the horrific tragedy in Orlando. Everyone wanted to do something as quickly as possible that would truly make a difference.”
